"Four “fritz” style helmets -2 with goggles, are provided, rather than the more current CVC helmets"

I think what you mean here is the more current MICH ACH (army combat helmet) CVC helmets are vehicle crew helmets (Combat Vehicle Crewman)

The M4A1 rifle in the kit is just that, not at all referred to as a CQBR or "Close Quarter Battle Rifle". That is a misnomer. Also, the "MOLLE Medic Bag" is not one at all, but just a common utility bag, otherwise, this is a great kit imo, with the best MOLLE packs on the market.

Is this supposed to be a new product? I see what looks like the exact same items and box photo and kit #048 on Lucky Hobby website, and it says it was released June 2003.

Just curious if this is something totally new with an old kit # ?????
